The inhabitants of the commune are known as Barbirotins or Barbirotines.
Barbirey-sur-Ouche is located some 25 km south-west of Dijon and 11 km east of Créancey. Access to the commune is by the D33 road from Gissey-sur-Ouche in the north-east which passes through the village and continues south to Saint-Victor-sur-Ouche. The D114 goes west from the village then north-west to Grenant-lès-Sombernon. The commune is heavily forested on the hillsides to the north and south with farmland in the valley.
The Ouche river passes through the commune just east of the village flowing from south to north to eventually join the Saône just east of Saint-Jean-de-Losne. The Ruisseau de la Gironde flows from the west down the valley to join the Ouche near the village. The Canal de Bourgogne (Burgundy Canal) also passes through the commune parallel to the Ouche on the eastern side. There are two locks in the commune - the Écluse de Dainevy to the south and another lock further north.

In 2010 the commune had 266 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger communes that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
